Easter Gardens Galore

We are usually treated to a wonderful Easter Garden built under the Altar, but as we can’t get into Church this year, we decided to create our own gardens at home instead…
So the good folk at Christ Church, Waltham Cross have been very busy creating Easter Gardens with whatever they have to hand in their homes and gardens – no popping out to the Garden Centre over the Bank Holiday Weekend!
As well as the ‘traditional’ plant based creations, we have a hand drawn garden complete with Passover moon, a wonderful ‘Lego’ garden, and a magnificent Easter Garden Cake by one of our star bakers… it’s a shame the lockdown means we can’t all have a slice…

Prayers which may be useful at this time

Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your disciples,
‘I am with you always’.
Be with me today, as I offer myself to you.
Hear my prayers for others and for myself,
and keep me in your care.

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Amen.

Please also look at our Donations page in the menu…. closed churches means our source of income has been severely reduced as we are not supported financially by the Government or the Church of England.
